Fairsians Reconnect at Fairfield Homecoming 2017
by Chloe Chua (Sec 2E)
On 20 May 2017, the Fairfield Methodist Schools’ Alumni Association held the Fairfield Homecoming event to provide a convenient platform for the Fairfield family to enjoy a time of fellowship and games within the warm embrace of the familiar blue and yellow walls. The myriad of engaging activities certainly achieved its aim of reuniting not just graduates of the various cohorts but also retired educators.
Many Fairsians from previous batches made the effort to form teams to participate in an exciting soccer tournament. The vociferous cheers and loud applause added much delight to an already joyous occasion and it certainly lent itself to the building of the Fairfield family experience among staff, students and the larger Fairfield family.
This year’s Homecoming was made more memorable with the addition of the Tea With Retired Teachers which enabled students of previous cohorts to connect with their beloved former Fairfield teachers. This certainly brought back a plethora of fond memories of one’s childhood spent under the guidance of these wonderful educators.
A carnival consisting of a multitude of amazing recreational activities and games was also organised for the Fairfield Family. The bouncy castle certainly appealed to the younger ones who had much fun playing in it. Parents and children also bonded more closely with each other through their joint participation in the carnival games like Nerf and Hoop Shot.
Whilst these events were ongoing, school guides from Fairfield Primary commenced the school tour, where they engaged parents of potential students about the various facilities and experiences the school provides to all Fairfield Primary students, so as to advocate the enrolment of their children into the Fairfield Family.
All in all, Fairfield Homecoming 2017 was a rousing success which undoubtedly ignited the spark of school pride amongst everyone in the Fairfield Family.
